Don’t you just love the aroma from burnt scented candles?

It might just be that candle making kits will bring with it the scent of sales and money!

With a sell-through rate of 52.15%, the candle making kit is clearly a niche to explore further. 

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

Candle making kit had a median end price of $27.09. Due to factors such as multiple kits in one listing or the kind of wax included in the listing the median end price is often ambiguous.
